With over 40 years of experience catering for high-society events, including state banquets for the royal family, Peter Gladwin knows a thing or two about putting together a great menu. Here, he shares an array of his own gastronomic delights plus a host of delicious recipes submitted by notable figures and celebrities, all of which can be cooked at home.

Recipes are separated into the following chapters: Canapés; Larder; Starters; Salads and Sides; Vegetarian and Vegan; Fish; Meat; Emulsions, Infusions, Essences and Good Gravy; Desserts; Cheese and Savouries; Chocolates and Sweetmeats. Alongside the recipes, Peter shares stories of London, menus he’s created, and anecdotes that divulge the secrets of the great kitchens and banquets in the Square Mile, giving the reader a rare and entertaining view behind ‘the green baize door’.

In aid of the Lord Mayor’s Charity Appeal, the book features a foreword from the Lord Mayor, Peter Estlin, and his own favourite recipe for Treacle Tart.
